: NAM is the greatest thing to happen to SimCity since the arcology and the multiple-cultural overlays!
Traffic pathing has always been that game's worst shortcoming. I discovered NAM 12 days before Banished came out and installed Java on my computer when I had said I wasn't going to do that again. You need Java to manage NAM properly.
I would need to print out a map of my banished colony in order to reproduce it in SimCity. I can't ALT-TAB out of an open SimCity 4 city, although I can from a region. What would the marketplaces be? Commercial zoning? SimCity 4 uses a different model, where traffic flow past commercial properties causes growth in those properties. Right now I encircle residential with commercial, and then industrial. The centers are civic services.
I bought a new copy of Family Tree Maker last week, just so I could enter the genealogy of colonies in Banished. I had the 2012 version into which I had entered my own family genealogy, but the 2014 version has an improved interface similar to that on ancestry.com where I also have my family genealogy. My interest in genealogy took a quantum leap two years ago when I discovered the link between my father's grandfather and the rest of a rather large family tree which I had received from another branch over 20 years ago. I found it published in an out-of-copyright book, of all things. I know it sounds silly but, even with all of my mother's family tree filled in, I still felt like an orphan until I found that link.
